Various Artists - The Recommended Records Sampler [1982]

This is a must for fans of Rock In Opposition, most of the songs by bands on this have never been published. This was originally released in 1982 on LP on the English label Recommended Records, then in September of 2008 they decided to release it on CD. Some of the songs have apparently been released as bonus tracks on the artists cds but I'm unsure which ones these are, so here you have it. I hope you will enjoy this one as much as I did.
